I'm yet to be convinced that a series like Assassin's Creed really needs co-op. Personally? I'd prefer a from-the-ground-up reinvention of the Assassin's Creed formula but that doesn't mean I can't be tempted! This new gameplay footage, complete with a talk through from Unity's Creative Director, provides an insight into how 'heist' missions.
It's all looking pretty mean and stealthy, which I like. I like the idea of being a stealthy assassin and I think my favourite part of what I've seen so far of Unity is the fact that it actually gives you the tools to be stealthy. That's something that's always been lacking in previous titles. There's always been stealth missions, but Assassin's Creed has always struggled with stealth.
So it looks good. Great even. But personally, with the new generation and all, I was kinda hoping that Ubisoft would really be a bit more brave and just completely reboot the control scheme, the animations, everything. I'm keen on a more stripped back Assassin's Creed experience that starts from scratch instead of embracing the bloat.
But here's the thing: Assassin's Creed is always at its best when you're a little worried about the direction. Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. When you have absolutely no concerns and you think the game is going to be perfectly incredible from every possible perspective? That's when you should start worrying!
